Who We Are

Jun 17, 2020

Welcome to Forward Church, a dynamic and inclusive community and society organization dedicated to faith and beliefs. Our commitment to making a positive impact in Cleveland and beyond has driven us to create a diverse and uplifting environment where everyone is welcome.

Our Story

At Forward Church, our story begins with a shared passion for faith, community, and service. We believe that by coming together and supporting one another, we can create a better world. Our journey began years ago when a small group of individuals realized the need for a church that embraced diversity, inclusivity, and love.

Since then, we have grown into a thriving congregation that fosters deep connections, provides spiritual guidance, and encourages personal growth. Our dedicated leadership team, alongside our members, works tirelessly to promote positive change, advocate for social justice, and spread the message of love and compassion.

Our Mission and Values

At Forward Church, our mission is to cultivate an environment where individuals can discover and deepen their relationship with faith, connect with others, and engage in meaningful acts of service. We strive to:

  • Foster Inclusivity: We believe that diversity enriches our community and actively work towards creating an inclusive space that celebrates all individuals, regardless of their background, race, gender, or sexual orientation.
  • Empower Individuals: We are committed to helping individuals realize their potential by providing a supportive and nurturing environment. Through empowering sermons, small group discussions, and mentorship, we inspire personal growth and encourage individuals to live their best lives.
  • Mission Outreach: We recognize the importance of giving back to the community and actively engage in impactful projects and initiatives. From organizing food drives to supporting local charities, we aim to make a positive difference in the lives of those in need.
  • Embrace Lifelong Learning: We believe that growth is a lifelong journey. Through engaging and thought-provoking sermons, workshops, and educational programs, we encourage individuals to deepen their understanding of faith, spirituality, and personal development.

Our Leadership

Guided by a team of passionate and dedicated leaders, Forward Church takes pride in its strong leadership structure. Our pastors and ministers are faith-driven individuals who provide guidance, spiritual support, and pastoral care to our members.
